Photography

The strength of the Crocker’s photography collection is its holdings of American photography since the mid-20th century. Examples represent major artistic movements ranging from surrealism to straight photography, street aesthetic, new topographies, and the conceptual. The collection has corollary strength in imagery of the American West, both historic and contemporary.
